Species text
Most records of this species are from the early part of this century; it has a well-documented history in northern Kent (Darenth, Foots Cray, Dartford, Farningham Road Station) between 1868 and 1939, though most of sites involved are probably now destroyed. It is also recorded from the south coast of Wales, with isolated records in West Sussex, West Kent and possibly Gloucestershire (old) and Lincolnshire (1896). More recent records include 3 sites in Glamorganshire in 1985 and 1986, and Sandwich, Kent in 1975 (Falk, 1991). A single female was collected new to Essex in 2003 at Anchor Field (Harvey, 2004), and it was found in numbers in 2005 about one kilometre to the south at West Thurrock North Lagoon. References
